Why Tire Rotation is So Important

Tire Rotation

If you think tire rotation is not really important, think again! Tire rotation may seem like a trivial maintenance job, but it can add a lot of life to your tires and save you money in the long run.

Why do you need to rotate you tires?

You may think that all four of your tires will wear down at the same rate, but that’s an incorrect assumption. With the engine in the front of most automobiles, the front tires bear most of the weight of the car. In addition, whenever you apply your brakes, the weight of the car shifts to the front. As you can see, tire rotation is a good idea to give your front tires some rest.

When do you need to rotate your tires?

Most vehicle manufacturers will recommend at what point a proper tire rotation is best for your car. Look inside your owner’s manual for the best time to rotate your tires. On average, you’ll see that it’s time to get a tire rotation around every 3,000 to 7,000 miles. Moreover, if you drive your car quite a bit, you’ll find that you’ll need to rotate your tires more frequently.

How do you rotate your tires?

  1. I have heard that rotating your tires is important but I didn’t really understand why. It makes sense, though, that all four tires do not wear at the same rate. It sounds like the front tires can take more of a beating because of the engine and because of braking. It is probably about time that I get my tires rotated. Thanks for the info!

  2. Telling me to rotate my tires after every 3,000 to 7,000 miles is really helpful advice. I know that I need to have them rotated soon, but I’ve been wondering when I should get that done. Now, I’ll definitely take my car to a mechanic so that I can have my tires rotated when they need it. Thanks for the useful information!

  3. It’s been a while since my last tire rotation, and I think it’s time for one again. I’ll make sure to take the car into the shop, and get them taken care of. This way I can get the most out of all my tires, and make them last longer.
